Stupid Punk Boy is a benefit compilation for the Translife Center in Chicago. It is slated for release on Cassette Store Day 2015 (October 17th).The Translife Center provides comprehensive programming and support to transgender individuals including health, housing, and legal support.

The title is a nod to 90’s Newcastle UK label Slampt and a song written by a band on the label called Golden Starlet, it’s also a nod to compilations like Elastic Jet Mission and diy benefit compilations like Fortune Cookie Prize. Great music for a Great cause.

The 23 track compilation is all exclusive material (with the exception of one bonus track by London’s Abjects on the 24 track physical release). The artwork was done by Sean Äaberg, the artist behind Pork Magazine, and it was mastered by Patrick Haight at Spot-On Sound.

“Live and Let Live”

Oh, the snot has caked against my pants
It has turned into crystal
There’s a bluebird sitting on a branch
I guess I’ll take my pistol
I’ve got it in my hand
Because he’s on my land

And so the story ended
Do you know it oh so well
Well should you need I’ll tell you
The end-end-end-end-end-end-end-end
And

Yes I’ve seen you sitting on the couch
I recognize your artillery
I have seen you many times before
Once when I was an Indian
And I was on my land
Why can’t you understand

And so the story ended
Do you know it oh so well
Well should you need I’ll tell you
The end-end-end-end-end-end-end-end
And

Served my time
Served it well
You made my soul ascend

Write the rules
In the sky
But ask your leaders
Why why

Oh, the snot has caked against my pants
It has turned into crystal
There’s a bluebird sitting on a branch
I guess I’ll take my pistol
I’ve got it in my hand
Because he’s on my land

And so the story ended
Do you know it oh so well
Well should you need I’ll tell you
The end-end-end-end-end-end-end-end
And

Served my time
Served it well
You made my soul ascend
